Making Crab Cakes with Chef Bryan Voltaggio


To Chef Bryan Voltaggio, OLD BAY is a great finishing spice, but it also represents fond memories of drinking beer and picking crabs with his family and friends. 

In the video above, he shares his secrets to crafting an authentic Maryland crab cake and the importance of using True Blue-certified Maryland crabmeat.

Chef Bryan's complete recipe is featured in The Dead Rise OLD BAY Cookbook alongside recipes from 16 other local celebrity chefs. Proceeds from the cookbook benefit the True Blue program, which advocates on behalf of the Chesapeake crabbing industry. 

And join Bryan and yours truly on Tuesday, June 24 for our annual Summer SOULstice party featuring these (now) infamous crab cakes paired with our Dead Rise OLD BAY Summer Ale and three other small-plate beer and food pairings. Check out our events calendar for details and to purchase tickets.
